  1. Hi. I started the #januarywhole30 on the 1st and was really motivated and excited. I was also tempted to use surgery on the 11th as an excuse to quit or cave but i did not. I read that the opiods and NSAIDs could be problematic so I'm finally done with those. I also switched to the AIP w30 two days ago. So losing the eggs has helped already. But holy crap i have been lethargic as hell! I'm going into day 23. Just wondering how much of a wrench surgery can throw into my w30 game? Because while I'm reading DaybyDay and keeping up with my FB group....i feel left out, or like I'm not doing it right....or something. I've done w30 several times before, never finished, but i had super energy by like the 5th day of cutting out all the crap. I am healthy overall, trying to take into account the recovery process, and also trying to get some perspective. Considering making it a w60 just to allow recovery and AIP to work itself out....but holy crap man. I have zero energy to get up off the couch. Thanks for listening. I'm sure i am being ridiculous and impatient but wanted to connect with someone who may have experienced something similar. Much love, Jackie
  2. Hi I am a 39 year old mom who has had the vertical sleeve operation (similar to bypass just not the small intestine to put it simply.) i am a healthy weight and workout all the time, I LOVE IT! I will say I replaced my food addiction with excercise. I also have PCOS and a very recently found lump in my breast. While the radiologist says maybe benign he couldn't be sure for another TWO years of testing and my OB/gyn said NOPE! You are seeing a breast cancer dr. She got me in rather quickly and I see him Monday. This has put a lot of things in my life in perspective. I bought the whole 30 book knowing that A) it is NOT A cure for cancer but it is definitely not going to hurt me (sugar has been showen to "feed" cancer) and B.) I need to get my life, sorry, healthy back on track! So I was planning on starting in 1 week, but tonight I decided to wait to see what the dr says. My OB told me if he wants to remove it that it would give me an answer now and not in two years so if he suggests surgery my husband and I decided to do it. Okay so onto my question how long should I wait after surgery (if I have to have it) to start whole 30? Keep in mind it is a relatively minor surgery. I am feeling so out of control of my life and health right now I need to plan even if it's just a start time frame! Thank you so much!

    Hi all Its been a long time since I've done a Whole30...TOO LONG!! I am now in a situation where I've put weight back on, I feel like crud and I'm not as strong as I'd like to be. It's been a tough few years with a son who has spent much time in the hospital and me stress eating and putting my own health on the back burner. Now I have hip arthritis and am looking at hip replacement surgery in mid November. I need to get my $&[email protected] together and get my health in order. My goals: - Slay the sugar dragon - Reduce inflammation - Feel more in control and eliminate the stress eating - Sleep better - Improve overall health - Lose weight (it really does need to happen to help ensure a smooth surgery experience) Glad to have others on the journey with me! Cheers!

    Hysterectomy + Whole30

    Hello ladies :-) I'm scheduled for a hysterectomy next week, to treat chronic, debilitating period and ovulation pain. I'm curious to know if anyone has avoided a hysterectomy by following a Whole30/paleo diet? I'm 37, have well and truly finished having kids after my 3, and have a window of time whilst I'm not working, which makes this an ideal time for surgery. However, there's a nagging question in the back of my mind regarding the potential to treat these issues with a While30 diet change. I don't plan on changing my mind about surgery, but I'd still appreciate hearing about other ladies' experiences.
  5. I am planning my whole30 for June 1.. I'm scheduled to have surgery June 22.. if I don't eat for 2 days will I still be compliant in my Whole30 and be able to just pick up where i left off?
  6. I'm a Crossfitter and triathlete who was in the full swing of preparing for my first Ironman, when a serious accident abruptly put a halt to my training. I am due for major shoulder surgery this Wednesday. My physical activity will be limited for quite some time and I won't be able to train for a significant amount of time. Until then my top priority in life is a full and healthy recovery. My normal eating habits are essentially built around the Whole30, so I'm eating fairly clean now. However, I'm looking for foods/supplements to increase or add into my diet that promote healing and recovery. I'm not talking about healing and easing soreness from a difficult workout, I'm talking about foods that will accelerate my body repairing and healing itself after trauma and surgery. Any tips or suggestions to share? As a professional musician and an ironman triathlete, my entire being is built around my body being healthy and functional. I've accepted that the next months will be the most challenging time of my life and will be patient. However, I am looking to do everything in my power to increase my chances of success and rate of healing. This includes tinkering with my nutrtion. Any help is ,uch appreciated!
